The event was in Texas - the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition. But with only small changes, this poem would fit many other locations. Art draws a crowd, much of it not there primarily for the art. But in the end, art shugs and moves forward.

I wonder if the three composers you mentioned could keep it to the chuckle in the midst of all those ten-gallon Texan egos? Enjoyed this very much, Dawn
